(New York, NY) September 14, 2022 - Contobox™ were announced as finalists for this year’s MediaPost Online Media Marketing & Advertising (OMMA) Awards for campaigns with The Home Depot Canada, CBC/Radio-Canada, and Canadian Tire. In total they received 5 nominations across 4 categories. Winners to be announced October 4th, 2022.

“We’re honoured to be nominated for the work we do with our incredible partners,” said Farrukh Gaffarov, CEO, Contobox™. “Integrating our technologies to develop award-winning customer journeys and experiences, creates strong bonds, happy customers, and happier clients.”

The Home Depot Canada’s ‘Build Your Smart Home Today’ is nominated in the Programmatic category. Aiming to both educate consumers and drive sales for their Smart Home suite of products, the campaign used Contobox’s True Intent, CDP, and shopper intelligence engine to analyze successful customer journeys and serve personalized in-ad product recommendations.

CBC/Radio-Canada received nominations in the Entertainment, and Interactive Campaign categories for their ‘CBC Listen app’ campaign with Rogers Sports & Media and Initiative. The campaign used Rogers Sports & Media’s Attention Advertising suite powered by Contobox technology, and included a first-to-market ‘Time Guarantee’ to ensure that media placements received a minimum amount of time in-view. In addition to using traditional attention metrics four new metrics were developed for the Time Guarantee program and debuted during the campaign.

Canadian Tire’s Mastercraft is nominated for their ‘Master Every Fix’ campaign in the Programmatic, and Rich Display Media categories. The campaign used Contobox’s Attention Metrics and Nielsen’s Digital Brand Effect data to optimize towards brand favorability outcomes. Contobox’s programmatic interactive display featuring video, shoppable product carousels, and a store locator, helped collect more attention data than standard display.

In 2021, Contobox™ was awarded the Digiday Technology Award for best Customer Data Platform and was a finalist for Best Personalization & A/B Testing Platform and Best eCommerce Technology.
